Well Father’s Day is nearly here so had to get my thinking cap on. As my dad is a big fan of FC Barcelona and also wishes he had a VW Campervan what better way than to mix the 2 together.
The colour’s may not mean much to many of you but the top layer are FC Barcelona’s home colour’s and the bottom layer are their away colour’s plus the colour’s of Catalan.
Now my dad has a VW Campervan !
Supplies :- Clearly Besotted Stamps – Colour Chameleon

Well I had all good intentions to use my fab Breast Cancer Awareness stamps and die cut this morning but just could not get an image to create this…typical as all week I had some good images in mind, I must start to jot these down !
Anyway, as my mum’s birthday is looming as she loves Poppies, I decided to give this set another go. Have to admit I am pleased with the outcome and am sure she will love it.
I then came up with a Nautical theme, I have no idea why but came up with this design.
Hope you like 🙂

Feeling bit more pleased with myself after my disappointment with Poppy stamp and dies.
I needed a storage for my die’s but really did not want to spend mega money so I had a brain wave …yes scary thought I know but I had an old CD Storage wallet gathering dust and that is what gave me the idea.
I bought a roll of magnetic tape from Poundland and made some basic background square card templates to slot inside and Voila !!!
So there we have it a cheap affordable Die Cut storage for £2 – These CD storage can also be found in Poundshops

Stamps are Flower Blocks – Clearly Besotted Stamps
I have been so busy with finishing off Christmas Eve Box No2 that I have been unable to do any crafting, unless you count making christmas eve box crafting as consists of wood glue and paint ??
So as I had a spare free day I decided to make some Christmas Cards for family members and I will admit that I had mental block to start with. I had everything ready to go, some die cuts ready and then I hit a slump. What makes it more frustrating is that I have some dies I cannot use as I need my new fang dangled machine which Santa is bringing me… Not to worry as come Boxing day I will be well away 🙂
So here are 4 cards I made and as always any feedback greatfully received
Have a great weekend Everyone 🙂
Yes sorry to say my favourite colour has reappeared !
Supplies :- Tattered Lace Snow Man Die, Reindeer & Flag Die – Clearly Besotted,

I had an unexpected day off today which gave me a chance to try out the new dies I got yesterday.
The Penguin was so fiddly I almost threw it in the bin but maybe one weekend I will give it another go…
Now the Reindeer I love ! And I have to say I think I have found my new favourite Christmas colour of Raspberry.
As I did not have brownish colour card, I used my distress ink to get the colour I was happy with and same the for the lights.
What do you think ?

Whilst waiting for my new goodies to arrive, apparently one wont be here till next week – *sighs* ( don’t you hate waiting ? ), a little girl I know is very poorly with chickenpox, I decided to make her a card.To which she loved.
Now I know they are not lined up 100% and one may be slightly off centred, but I am pleased with how they look.
Another good thing that happened today, I popped to The Range to get some piant for the Christmas Eve Box No2 and came away with 3 more Christmas dies ! Rude not to when they were price £1.99 – £2.50, so will be giving them a whirl this weekend 🙂
Supplies :- Sweet Treat Stamps – Clearly Besotted, Colour Chameleon Stamp Set, Die – Flower Blocks, Prismacolor
Just realised I have a friend who is due to have a boy soon and she loves home / hand made stuff, so out came the crafting gear again.
I am pleased with this final card. I know I am not great compared to ALOT of crafters out there but I will get better or so I hope.
I will admit I was going to admit defeat with this as my corner punch was a nightmare and I ended up making loads of squares when I only needed 8 but I got there in the end ( maybe giving it a whack helped I don’t know ).
Here is the finished result.
